FPT, the leading information technology (IT) services provider in Southeast Asia, and Carlsberg, one of the world’s leading brewery groups, signed a global framework contract on September 12 in Hanoi.

FPT officially becomes Carlsberg’s technology partner under the deal, providing IT as well as digital transformation (DT) services. The two sides also plan to explore additional areas in DT, including smart brewery, cloud migration to azure, open API platforms, data strategy, and analytics.

“We are excited about entering into this partnership with FPT,” Mr. Cees’t Hart, CEO of the Carlsberg Group, told the signing ceremony. “Their support in helping us digitize our breweries gets us closer to realizing our sustainability goals as well as improving productivity.”

The cooperation between FPT and Carlsberg was initiated in January. After a few months of cooperation, FPT played the role of DT partner for Carlsberg in many projects relating to manufacturing execution systems (MES) and AI for planning and connected bars.

With MES, FPT has enhanced the company’s experience in delivering projects related to digital monitoring and control systems, helping Carlsberg optimize the manufacturing process and maximize production output. FPT was chosen to implement this project because of its proven technology capability and strong global presence, especially in Asia.

Carlsberg has been planning to roll out MES at 14 breweries across Asia in the near future. In addition to MES, FPT will leverage its expertise in AI to help Carlsberg analyze consumer behavior, predict demand, and plan for production.

The collaboration between FPT and Carlsberg in DT was also expanded to connected bars, which is considered a “game changer” for Carlsberg. Connected bars, enabled by smart censors, not only allow the brewer to assure product quality but also monitor consumption at the same time, leading to an effective supply management system.

“At FPT, we always strive to enhance and enrich our technology capability so as to offer more value-added service to our clients,” said Mr. Truong Gia Binh, FPT’s Chairman. “We have set a target of turning into a world-class DT service provider. By becoming the global IT services provider of Carlsberg, we have a responsibility to help our client in its business modernization and digitalization, leading to high business efficiency and an extraordinary customer experience, thus reaffirming Carlsberg’s position as the leading beer and beverage producer.”

The signing ceremony took place within the scope of FPT’s 30th anniversary celebrations, marking a memorable milestone for the FPT Corporation on its journey to becoming a trusted partner with global companies in DT.

Established in 1988, FPT has become the leading IT services provider in Southeast Asia with a global customer pool of more than 500. Partnering with technology disruptors such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Siemens, IBM, and GE Predix, it aims to quickly adopt the world’s latest technology, helping the company’s clients accelerate the journey towards transforming their business.
